My Perception of The World

How I see the world is how I see myself.

A cold dark and lonely place.

I am that cold dark and lonely place.

Although the warm blood runs through my veins.

I feel numb. I feel like I am not alive, yet I still breathe without breathing.

I see time moving on but I am standing still.

My body is changing but I am still trapped.

I don't know how to live but yet I am still living.

My perception of myself is the world around me and the world inside of me.

Life is moving on but I am not, yet I am still wading in the water.

My body is moving against my will because I am trapped in the cycle of life.

A very interesting introspective you have used to define your own unique relationship with this Life, sassyk73!

Your view mirrors the turbulence that mixed emotions can create if forced to choose a path which deviates from your desired aspirations.

There is a very strong creativity in you, that wants to be recognized and seeks to be developed because it is a source of strength in your character! Keep writing and you will find your way! Creativity can not and should not be denied, sassyk73! Time isn't the enemy and life is to be LIVED!

Voted Up!

Regards Mike (Aka Professor M!) ;D

...well these are the poetry perceptions of a lady who is in touch with her emotions and her intellect - thank you for your fine writing - and as I always say if you write from the heart the mind will always follow - and you certainly do both very well.
